Tell the people everything about this life – Acts 5:20

Inner City Outreach

The Kingdom of God is for all people, regardless of their social status and income.

 

Missionaries in Houston are seeking to expand quality ministry, that is more commonly only found in the wealthier suburban parishes, to urban and under served areas of our city.  Currently we serve in the 2nd, 3rd, 5th wards and also in the Denver Harbor and Richmond neighborhoods.

 

Apostolic and missionary fruitfulness is not principally due to programs and pastoral methods that are cleverly drawn up and “efficient”, but is the result of the community’s constant prayer (cf. “Evangelii Nuntiandi,” 75). Moreover, for the mission to be effective, communities must be united, that is, they must be “of one heart and soul” (cf. Acts 4:32), and they must be ready to witness to the love and joy that the Holy Spirit instills in the hearts of the faithful (cf. Acts 4:32).” - Pope Benedict XVI, Papal Message for World Youth Day ’08, July 24, 2007

 

Adore Ministries wishes to fully live this out within their communities, especially those that are easily overlooked or forgotten. There are many situations within our reach that are desperately in need of hope, and as the situations and gaps present themselves to us, we must ask ourselves: how are we willing to serve?

In one of the largest cities in our country, we hope to transform families and create a long lasting culture of faith that is centered on Jesus Christ. Our hope is to walk with young people in areas of need, in order to catechize and disciple in the most effective way for that particular community. Though the model make look differently for different communities, the catechetical component and discipleship models are fundamentally the same, oriented toward making disciples of all nations.
